4 stars A lot has been said about this album already on this site. This was a highly influential work that paved the way for symphonic rock music in particular and it was a huge turn away from the band's R&B roots. I really like the very inventive ideas on here and the concept of tracing an everyman's day from daybreak to night, awakening to sleep.

There are many musical interludes in between the songs which were played by the London festival orchestra. "Dawn, Dawn Is A Feeling" is the first main song that sets off that romantic, mystical, dreamy atmosphere that swirls around throughout the album. There are some nice touches from the flute and of course the lovely mellotron. This was the first of a string of greats by the Moodies. I love all the albums from this one right up to "Seventh Sojurn" very much indeed. Some favourites here are the wonderous, magical "Tuesday Afternoon" and the equally enchanting "Twilight Time". "Nights In White Satin" is also of course a great sixties classic.

"Days Of Future Passed" was an extremely original piece of work for it's time and is perhaps dated in many ways now, but that doesn't matter much to me. I'd highly recommend it nonetheless.
